Oculus Touch Release Date Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB) is leading the virtual reality (VR) industry through “Oculus,” which is preparing to launch its latest product, the Oculus “Touch” VR motion controllers.
The social network giant bought the virtual reality technology company for $2.0 billion in 2014 as part of its strategy to ensure its long-term growth. Many believe that Oculus could help boost Facebook stock since virtual reality is the latest trend in the technology industry.
Oculus Touch Release Date
Some people in the technology industry are speculating that the Oculus Touch VR motion controllers would be available in the market during the holiday shopping season, probably in November or December.
The speculations were based on the fact that Facebook’s Oculus team are scheduled to provide more details about the hardware during the Oculus “Connect 3” event on October 5–7 at the San Jose McEnery Convention Center in California.
The release date and price for the Oculus Touch is still uncertain, but one thing is sure: the motion controllers support more than 30 virtual reality games. The company has already promised that 20 games are “brand new” and specifically created for the hardware, and that hundreds more are in development.

The company has released a fun and exciting preview of some of the Oculus Touch games. Just watching the preview, I could tell that the controllers offer precise hand tracking.
The ergonomics of the Oculus Touch make it a winner because it fits perfectly in the hands of the players. The buttons and joysticks of the controllers are placed where the fingers can control them easily and naturally. I am convinced that the controller offers a new level of virtual reality experience that is truly appealing, engaging, and immersive. Many gamers are already excited and patiently waiting for its arrival.
